We are dedicated to helping you create the home you’ve always wanted.


We understand that certain budget styles meet certain budgets and we can recommend on how to add flare without draining your budget.

Working Together

Getting Started

We offer two different design packages:

Basic Package Design

  • Floor plans for each floor, marked with dimensions and scaled, with construction notes.
  • Foundation plan showing the foundation size and footing size/type.
  • Roof plan with construction notes for truss designers
  • 4 Exterior elevations.
  • Full color 3-D rendering of the exterior of the home with preferred colors and finishing's.

Full Package Design

  • Includes all of the components of the Basic Design.
  • Window and door schedule.
  • Specified materials and trims noted on plan.
  • Elevations of kitchen and bathrooms with cabinet sizing and layout.
  • Cross sections of any requested rooms/areas.
  • Full color 3-D rendering of the interior of each room as well as the exterior.

Both design packages come with scaled measurements, construction notes, 3 full size printed copies of the plan (typically 24" x 36"), JPEG's of the 3-D designs via email or mail and are ready to bid and build from.

Basic and Full Package Cost

After a free no obligation consultation via phone, email or a job estimate is made, a half down payment is required along with the signing of a design contract.


** Design estimates are not always exact and can change due to longer revisions or multiple changes. Advance notice will be given if there is an increase in the total cost and before any further work is done.


Contact Vince for pricing information.

How Our Design Process Works:

Preliminary designs will be done which include floor plans and one elevation or quick 3-D exterior rendering. Designs will be presented to client for review and revisions will be discussed. 


Many times, multiple revisions will be needed before end results are produced (approx. 3-5 revisions).


When the final design is agreed upon, a job invoice will be sent, and 3 full scale copies of the plan will be presented to the client upon receiving final payment for the design. If any revisions are needed after this, they will be charged hourly. Small, quick revisions can be done for no cost, and we will remain available for assistance with any contractors or vendors during the building phase.
